You walk into the dark alley periodically looking back to see nothing but a dense fog. You meet your informant, shaking as they ask, "Is it safe to speak?" You announce in your best non-regional dialect, "Hey Google, Alexa, Cortana, Siri" and wait for a beep; "Good. We're alone."

Mastodon.cloud restarted yesterday with new admins and new server.

The server is administered in Japan and has a new Code of Conduct.

I ask for the news of mastodon.cloud's return to the fediverse be boosted and shared as widely as possible; its many users dispersed to other places.

Thank you for boosting!

Apple created the worlds first graphic omniscient device. It doesn't answer your questions it just says "I know".

Github is now a fully owned, proprietary tool of Microsoft.

It's time to decide.

Do we as a community allow our future to depend upon commercial interests of a company that to this day spreads FUD and minimizes our impact when it suits their plans?

Or do we step up, do what we do best and take our code to somewhere created by the us for us and the good of the community?

This isn't about hating Microsoft. It's about loving our own sovereignty and controlling our *own* future.

Please Boost.

Always amazes me to see that SQL database compressed to 2.5 gigabytes and backed up in 65 seconds.

Saw Deadpool 2 yesterday with friends. It's just as bad as the first one with as much comic mayhem as you ever want to see.

I still wonder, since poppler gets updated on a regular basis, what poppler actually is. The description says: "pdf utilities from poppler" which is a self referring phrase in this usage.

I have yet to hook this Pi 3B to a monitor. I tried the premade image for the LCD and it worked. For the newest raspbian (below) I had to copy the files to the freshly written image and enable ssh as well so I could log in to install the drivers. It worked. Might try Ubuntu mate next as there's drivers for that too.

My first Raspberry Pi. An entire system around 160 times faster than my first pc-xt clone. IN THE PALM OF MY HAND!

Got my first Pi today, loaded a card, booted it up. That little thing is powerful. Image file was pre made for the LCD panel I got with it.
